MLperf power numners


I’ve a question about the power measurements at: v1.0 Results | MLCommons

Test ID: 1.0-633 NVIDIA
NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier 32GB (MaxQ, TensorRT)

What is this MAXQ? I assume it’s some power saving mode but I couldn’t find documentation about this.

In this test case, inference times and power consumption numbers are given but there are no corresponding TOPS. What TOPS are used in this calculation?

Thanks for any advice?

Best regards,
Srik Gurrapu


Thanks for your question.

We are double-checking this internally.
Will get back to you soon.


Sorry for the late.

MAXQ is a power mode defined in the MLPerf sample.
You can find some information below:

The performance is measured in time.
You can find the detailed score for Xavier of each model below:


Thank you for the reply. The follow-up question i have is this.

The power number for

Test ID: 1.0-633 NVIDIA
NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier 32GB (MaxQ, TensorRT)
NVIDIA Carmel (ARMv8.2) 1 NVIDIA AGX Xavier

Resnet power: 25.20W
SSD-small power: 23.79W
SSD-large: 23.20 W

Could you elaborate on what does this power include? I assume it is SoC plus DDR memories needed to run inference but wanted to confirm,

Also, when I look at the log files below, the power is 17W - which is different from the above link.

Thank you for any clarification.

Hi srikgurrapu,

Please help to open a new topic. Thanks
